New Somali Language Materials

Posted on Monday 4 August 2008

As a part of our mission to enrich the lives of community residents, we have developed a collection of Somali Language Materials (Waxyaabo Ku Qoran Luuqada Af-Soomaliga) that includes books and DVDs about Somali life and culture.

According to an article in the Columbus Dispatch this year, “Franklin County’s immigrant population grew 158 percent between 1990 and 2004…A large portion of that population is made up of Somalis and Latinos.”

Check out our complete list of titles and reserve one today! While you’re at it, take a look at our Spanish Language books and media collection.

    Why dont you include “The Somali Court Interpreter” in your collections?

    It is the most useful resource for the Somali people in the US and Canada

    Thank you for your comment! If you are interested in borrowing the Somali Court Interpreter, we can always bring it in for you from another library. Simply stop at the Ask Here desk on the second floor to place a request!

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you!
